Publisher's Summary

A new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series: Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality when a woman who traffics in other people's secrets is silenced.
The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it's not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that's exactly what happens one cold February evening.
The mortally wounded woman is Larinda Mars, a self-described "social information reporter," or as most people would call it, a professional gossip. As it turns out, she was keeping the most shocking stories quiet, for profitable use in her side business as a blackmailer. Setting her sights on rich, prominent marks, she'd find out what they most wanted to keep hidden and then bleed them dry. Now someone's done the same to her, literally - with a knife to the brachial artery.
Eve didn't like Larinda Mars. But she likes murder even less. To find justice for this victim, she'll have to plunge into the dirty little secrets of all the people Larinda Mars victimized herself. But along the way, she may be exposed to some information she really didn't want to know...

Not quite up to snuff

I love the series and anxiously await each installment, but this one felt "light". It was like Robb was trying to fit in a touch of each character (Nadine, Mavis, Eve's evil past) and there wasn't anything that grabbed me this time. Also the bad guy was just too obvious. I'll continue with the series, but I think I'll revisit some of the earlier novels for my next fix.

Something lacking

I love this series and reread/ listen to it often. I loved the interchange with the characters as always in this particular book, but it felt like something was lacking in the plot. The villain was predictable, too predictable, and it feels like there are unanswered questions to the crime. Mainly, why did the victim change her identity so drastically?
